CD Reviews

Unique Soundtrack CD for a Unique Movie
Robert A. Keeler | Grand Rapids MI | 01/26/2001
(3 out of 5 stars)

"I'll bet the farm that ALL buyers of this CD are those who've already seen the movie. There've been a couple of recordings of the actual title ballet music, but this CD is unique. It includes - as far as I can recall - practically all significant music cues, INCLUDING snippets of dialog. If you haven't seen the film,it all won't mean much; but as I've said, this is for fanatic "Red Shoes" movie repeaters. Quality is mediocre; unprocessed monophonic transfers from the soundtrack - hiss is evident thoughout. The 4-page pamphlet packs a surprising amount of info: plot synopsis, full production credits, cast, awards, and a Powell/Pressburger filmography; plus a short but pithy essay on the history of the movie. Thankfully, this is more than most soundtrack CDs include; but, come on fellas; better proofreading would be welcome - lots of typos and spelling howlers. Good fodder for balletomanes."
Disappointing

"I was excited when I first stumbled upon this album, which appears to be the full original score to The Red Shoes. It is complete, but only by virtue of the fact that it is lifted directly from the audio track of the movie itself. The sound quality is terrible, and the dialogue and sound effects have not been removed from the recording.

To be fair, the original musical track has probably long since vanished. Because a great deal of the music is actively played rather than atmospheric, I can see a lot of these tracks being difficult to isolate. However, this is not the definitive disc I'd been - and am still - hoping for."
